      This is a wonderfully delicious cake! It was festive for the holidays. I went to three stores to try to find fresh cranberries, and at Christmas time, it just wore me out. So at the third store, I purchased raspberry preserves and used that for the filling. It was terrific. So even though I did not use the cranberries, I am still giving it 5 stars for the cake alone! I plan to try different fillings, such as blueberry and raspberrie for patriotic functions, and yes, eventually the cranberry. Thanks for the great recipe Anna

      Absolutely great cake, especially for those of us who enjoy (and almost always have around) fresh and freshly frozen cranberries! The only change I made was to add a bit more of the orange zest! A great cake recipe that I intend to keep on hand! Thanks for sharing it! [Made and reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]

      I can't have cranberry, so I used a peanut butter ganache. I also added a layer of ganache on top, before icing. Wonderful flavor.
